Customs in Regard to Bowing. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 9 January 1914

Customs in Regard to Bowing. r T (By ill's. FRANK LEARNED.) •One of the tests of good breeding, training, and culture is in the man ner in which a bow or salutation .of recognition is made. A brusque, abrupt manner is rude. A very effusive manner and a low' bow are worse. The correct salutation is between the two extremes. Although according to circumstan ces, a bow may be cordial, friend ly, formal, slight, deferential or familiar, it must be made. A person who has been introduced is entitled to recognition. An important rule about bowing is that a mau must wait for a lady, to recognise him. Between friends the act" of bowing is almost simul taneous, but it is the privilege of o woman' to take the initiative by being the first to bow. As has been said, an introduction entitles every one to a bow. Only for very grave reasons would anyone ovor give a direct "cut," when the claim an introduction imposes has been absolutely forfeited. In a case where there has been inexcusablo conduct ...

The nearest star Is dis tant l>5,0u0,00(>,000,000 miles. Go, to the star and1 let each unit repre sent one mile ; then the distance rep resented by a line of ones, -5 tril lion miles long, submerges all hu man powers of imagination. But write a row of '2'222'22 . . 25 trillion miles long, Lhen the number of miles represented would bo twice as great. Then write a row of . . equally as long, and the distance expressed would be nine times as great as that represented by the ones. Iiut. no human brain can think ol tho distance expressed by the ones. Let tho first row of figures extend 25 trillion, or fifty, or a thousand trillion miles to the east ; then a row could bo similarly extended toward tho west.

SUBSTITUTE FOR A GLASS CUTTER. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 9 January 1914

SUBSTITUTE FOll A GLASS CUTTEIt. It sometimes happens that when one has to cut glass a glass cutter is not at hand, or the one in use is worn out. The following will make a gooil .substitute : Take an old file, break the end and it will be found tluit one corner will gene rally have a very sharp edge, which will cut glass quite as well as any cutter. Of course it .soon wears down, but it is merely neccssary to break a small piece off the file again, and it will be as sharp' as before. In warming a steamed pudding, or in steaming a stale cake, never put the article on a plate or a tlat dish. Place the pudding in a colan der in the steamer, and you will be j surprised to find how much lighter and more delicate the pudding will be than if a piate had been used | for the moisture t<> settle on and make the pudding stodgy.

Balmoral. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 9 January 1914

Balmoral. Balmoral is a typical Scottish castle, built in the old baronial style. Tlie corridors are lined with stags' heads / which have fallen to the guns of the Uoyal sportsmen, whose names are placed beneath the trophies. The pictures in the Castle are chiefly of sporting .scenes and Scottish landscapes, and the Koyal tartan plaid is seen in curtains and upholstery. The Queen's private rooms have a beautiful outlook over the Dee. The wooded hill of Craig Gowau rises at the hack of the Castle, and from its summit the bonfires blaze to . commemorate family and na tional events. The last bonfire was in honour of the King's Corona tion. Cairns abound on the lulls of Balmoral, for throughout the seventy odd years in which it has been a Royal residence, special family events have been marked in this Highland fashion. The idea was originated by the Cairn-a-quheen, or the Cairn of Remembrance,'some mile and a half on tlie roucl frotn llulmoral to | "'J'ich marks the spot where the !• ar...

The names of Lord Chester and. .Mildred Moore were coupled together every- ' where in London. If the shameless intimacy were riot soon broken off, Sir Peter saw the crumbling of his hopes\fot-,-iSdwin«i and. not only that he saw before him an angry duke, and the loss of the prestige of that duke's friendship and business. Sir Peter felt in great measure respoh j sible for Lord Chester—accountable to the duke for his moral and physi cal welfare. He could stand the scan dal no longer. The time for action had come. ' Sir Peter sat in his private office at the bank one afternoon in an; unusu ally idle mood. He was waiting. A messenger entered. "Lord Chester to sec you, Sir Peter," he .said. "Ah !

Farmers Should be Students. Jt is a well known fact that noth ing stain's still for any great length of time ; things either go forward and improve, or ^o backwards and deteriorate. If a lawyer has ambition to become <1 better lawyer, he dues not diminish his study of the law, but rather in creases it. If a doctor would attain to the highest, pinnacle of his profes sion, he does not practice medicine as it was taught an.l practiced 100 years ago, but he reads and studies the new ideas as advanced by known leaders and experimenters of to-day. Carpenters, printers, stone-masons, miners, merchants—all have discarded old and out cf date methods for new er and more economical ways in which to do their work. IS THE FARMER CARELESS ? Have we as farmers kept up the procession ? Let us investigate. Do men who wish to become farmers, in the great majority of cases, think it necessary to go through a prescribed course of study ? They do not. Do they read up the newest and best metho...

Discovery by Accident. About the discovery of oil in Pa pua an interesting story went the rounds of tho Press a year or two ago. A British traveller noticed a taste of what he thought was kerosene oil in his tea, and rebuked his native boy for carelessness. The boy protested that he had allowed no oil to get near the kettle in which the water was boiled, and, I on investigating the source front which the water was obtained, his master found a film of crude oil llonting on the top, which, gave the kerosene taste to the tea. On his return the traveller told the circum stances, and in consequence the dis trict. was explored, with the result that evidences of petroleum were found. Early last year a-young foreigner" Mr. Felix Orebin, was sent to Pa pua by a London syndicate, "and lie took with him a portable machine for the purpose of drilling for oil. fie put down two wells, and in the first of these petroleum: was found at a depth of 228ft.

Having attained the dignity of a Minister of the Crown it was con sidered by politicians that it only re mained for the constituency to feel honored by returning their Liberal representative to parliament once more without a contest.
